I know, as a reader, that we have to see things from both side of the "war" but I can't help disliking a author who tries to make us sympathize with EVERY SINGLE BAD GUY there is in her damn book. I want to know who to dislike and I don't give a damn about their happy ending!!!
I don't like Stryker and that b***h wife of his. They all need to be kill off somewhere and take Nick with them.
And damn, I was just starting to like her books. I'll keep track of her upcoming books just so I can read and be disappointed with her future books. Damn, I'm a masochist.
And when the hell will we get Hades and Persephone's book. I rather read about them then Stryker and his b***h....more
You know you have a problem when you're more interested in the secondary characters than the main characters.

Arik and Meg are so annoying--and this word dosen't scratch the tip of the iceberg of just how annyoing they are. I mean basically Arik is a Skoti who wants to have sex with Meg and bargains with Hades to become human in order to have sex with her and Meg is a sarcastic, cold-hearted, little prick who hates the world. Really, they deserve each other. Arguing does not equal love.
I skip most of the pages before forcing myself to read page by page and trying not to fall asleep. The only character that I paid attention to was Z.T. I want more of him if you get my drift.
It's a boring book that lacked humor and plotline and romance. I was more interested in Persephone and Hades' relationship than Meg and Arik's and that is just toooooo sad....more
Acheron's past is violent and tormenting--there are bigger words to describe it but it won't justify what happened to him so many years ago. He has beAcheron's past is violent and tormenting--there are bigger words to describe it but it won't justify what happened to him so many years ago. He has been dealing with the bitch Artemis for too long and has been betrayed so many times that he has no trust left. He sets up a barrier between him and everyone--humen, God, and those in-betweens-- else despite their efforts to get close to him. The only person to get close to him is a woman by the name of Tory. Tory is the woman who accepts Ash for who he is regardless of his past and is willing to walk to Hell for him, not to mention she gives Artemis a run for her money. She stands up to him but isn't afraid to protect him either.
I had felt that Kenyon rushed Archeon and Tory's relationship too much and it wasn't as detailed as her other Dark Hunter series. I wished that she had written Archeon's past and Archeon & Tory's story in two seperate books. There are times when it was confusing and a bit forced but thinking it logically—I am glad that at long last Archeon has someone who he can call his own, someone who can love him with no prejudice, and someone who will kill for him.
I do believe that Ash and Tory are two lonely creatures who probably felt some kind of connection with each other in a very short amount of time. They probably do love each other but it's not at its strongest point, yet. But then, nothing says I-want-to-get-to-know-you-better than marry/live with the man, have smoking sex with him, and then beat him over the head for being so damn hard to resist.
I had--and still have--a major weak spot for Ash and that says a lot since I dislike the majority of Kenyon's male and female characters. There are only a few characters--Urain, Zarek, Jaden, Jared, Jeriocho, Hades, and Savitar--that I adore dearly. I swore that I would never read Kenyon's stories again but I will only because I want to read more or actually skip to the scenes about Ash & Tory. They're like the ultimate couple.
I think the only people who should read "Acheron" are those who actually like him and want to understand him more. I mean picking up his gazillion chapters book is like giving yourself a death sentence if you think "Ash" is something you collect from a volcano sight. I read it because I wanted to know that he had someone special--who was willing and waiting to stand by his side until they die. Of all the characters I ever read about; he's the one who deserves love the most. ...more
